Revise Philosophy for AS Level is the definitive revision guide for students of the Advanced Subsidiary level syllabus. Following the AQA syllabus, it helps students revise using past exam questions, examiner's reports, and tips on revision for the examination. Also included are a helpful glossary and annotated further reading. It covers all three units of the AS Level syllabus:

  • Unit 1: Theory of Knowledge
  • Unit 2: Moral Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion
  • Unit 3: Texts.

The four set texts are discussed: Plato's The Republic, Descartes' Meditations, Marx and Engels’ The German Ideology and Sartre’s Existentialism and Humanism.

Essential reading for all students of AS Level Philosophy, it is an ideal companion to the textbook Philosophy for AS and A2, also published by Routledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much better than 'Philosophy for AS and A2' 21 May 2007
By Andrew
Firstly, despite the title, this is not a revision guide but more a full-blown textbook. It seems the creators of 'Philosophy for AS and A2' relaised that their book was far too superficial and so have made a new one, with much more in-depth coverage. Unlike the other book mentioned, this one is well worth buying.

Generally things are described very well and in neat sections, and the specification has been kept in mind (nearly all of the subheadings in the book are actually directly lifted from the specification, they have litreally tried to cover all those tiny things that usually pass by other authors). This book really offers a sense of discovery and learning as its coverage is really quite engrossing. Some minor criticisms is that every now and a then explanations seems rushed (although this is nothing a re-read can't cure) and that its coverage in sections could be called slightly 'bitty'. To be honest though, these can be put down to the fact no text book is perfect and I hihgly recommend it.

My advice to students of AQA AS-level philosophy is to buy this and 'Understanding Philosophy for AS level'. Together these books will offer you a complete comprehensive understanding of the topics. I have found it vital in philosophy to look at at least two different explanations/slants on concepts and topics becuase they can differ and you will need to synthisise and understand. These two are the best two books to acomplish that. 'Revise Philosophy for AS' offers a usefully alternative look on things, infintely more apt practice questions as they come from past exams and a more acruate coverage of the specification.

5.0 out of 5 stars ignore the 1 star review 9 April 2011
Ignore the 1 star review, this has most of the stuff you'll need for a decent grade in AS philosophy. Suppliment it with whatever else you've been given to read and you'll be laughing I reckon.
